If They Give You Lined Paper, Write Sideways"My readers showed me with their questions and comments that my ideas really were alarmingly alien. The way I think about things, it seems, evolved in such a way that just doesn't match the way most people think about things. I don't know how it happened. It took me years to realize that it even had happened.
For the past four or five years I've spent a lot of time thinking about how to produce a meaningful answer to the question 'How do I arrive at the strange, unexpected answers to the questions people ask me?'
If They Give You Lined Paper, Write Sideways is the best solution I've been able to come up with."
